Stellar stuff here. OK, maybe I find myself drifting off a bit during a half hour Darkstar, but there is so much fantastic music throughout the whole show that I can't help but love this one start to finish. Neighbors be damned today, this one gets cranked.

I love the whole run, but this evening's Mexicali Blues has some fine drumming.

Dayummmmmmm that's some mighty fine stuff.

But we already knew that.

No chance of issues similar to ringolevio's recent headphone dilemma....my 'puter has speakers and a sub.

The other occupants of the cube farm might want headphones, but I caught three of them tapping their feet about a minute into US Blues.

I know we're not supposed to use the phrase 'Best Ever Show' so I'll settle for 'this show has the most my favourite versions of my favourite numbers' instead. Up to Morning Dew now - quite possibly my favourite version.

This brings back memories! Bearded Phil (?), the worry about a possible "break-up" (we hadn't heard the term "hiatus" yet, which seemed so much better a phrase, of course), and the all familiar set list: a combination of Euro 72/Wake/Mars, with some Skull/Roses #s and Ace/Garcia thrown in for good measure. Of course, I also hadn't been bludgeoned with USBlues just yet, so I recall really enjoying that upbeat number (prior to, quoting Bob again, discovering that yes, YOU can get too much of a good thing...by the end of the 70s, I didn't really want to hear that song again).

Also brings back fond memories of Winterland, since this was the only venue I saw the Boys in that harkened back to the early days (missed out on all the famous venues of the late 60s in the SF area). The "overalls" guy with his long stringy beard, towering above most of us in line, a seeming fixture of every Winterland show I attended...the security guys, that seemed to really come out in force by about this time, three or four (??) of them grabbing, poking and prodding as you entered clutching your ticket and hoping they didn't reach too far and too deep, and the great disappointment as they discovered the smallest available bottle of So Comfort snuggling against your precious kwipment just south of the requisite button fly jeans one and all considered uniform...

Thanks for the reminder; if I can't move to NY, I figured I'll send you a new chair in the hope of buying back your vote in future AZ based polls...

If we're playing the "gun to your head" or "deserted island" game this would be my first choice. What a great box this three night run would make although hard to believe they would release a box from Winterland in Nov. '73 and another from Feb '74. That would be almost like releasing DVDs from back to back shows in '89!! No chance of such things ever happening......
